The Free Press (see sidebar) and Sun report that Nick Ternette is recovering in hospital from a double amputation of his legs to deal with an infection.
I've only met him a couple of times and didn't always agree with his politics. He's a man who is passionate about his politics and the issues he believes in. Unlike many, he has spent his life putting his time, money and energy where his mouth is even during his recent battle with cancer.
I wish him well.
Born: 1945 in Germany, immigrated to Canada with his parents when he was 10.
Education: Daniel McIntyre Collegiate, UofW ('67 B.A. Sociology).
Election Runs: 20 in Winnipeg and Calgary (5 as mayor, 13 for council, 2 for school trustee).
